Spooky Walk is canceled

Regrettably, the paths and field will be too slippery, so Spooky Walk 2011 has been canceled.

See you next year, and have a great Halloween everyone!

Spooky Walk postponed until Sunday

Snow for Spooky Walk? Unheard of! But, sadly, it may be true.

Spooky Walk has been officially postponed, it will be held Sunday, October 30, at 6PM. That gives you an extra day to get the costumes together.

See you there.

New Location – Shakespeare in the Park 8/7/11

Because of the downpours we’re having now, Shakespeare in the Park, scheduled for this afternoon at Robbins Farm, has been moved indoors to Arlington Center for the Arts. Measure for Measure will be performed in the ACA Theater @ 5:00 pm. Seating is limited – first come, first served. Address is 41 Foster Street in East Arlington, for more information visit www.acarts.org.

Family Nature Walk

Thursday, July 14th, 6:30pm

Join Lolly Bennett and Ellen Reed, both teacher/naturalists, for a walk to explore the habitats of Menotomy Rocks Park. The walk is geared toward families with children aged 4-7. We will explore animal life in the park and search for signs of animals that make their homes there.

The walk is free, but a donation of $10 or greater to the Arlington Friends of Parks Fund (c/o Arlington Recreation Office 422 Summer St., Arlington, MA 02476) would be appreciated. Space is limited – please register by July 10th to reserve a spot. To register, send names, ages of children, and a phone number to mrpwalks@gmail.com

Orienteering Event

On Monday May 30th, the New England Orienteering Club will host an orienteering event at Menotomy Rocks Park. Orienteering is a map navigation activity, and a great way to get out and enjoy the park. All are welcome: families, beginner, young and old. Instruction will be provided upon request. For more information, see www.neoc.org.
